of barack obama reading that actual note. the procession to the capitol is always a big deal. here's a picture from exactly 100 years ago. an open carriage, and that is william howard taft on the right and the new president woodrow wilson on the left. in 1933 we have a situation with franklin d. roosevelt and herbert hoover. the two of them didn't get along so well. there wasn't a lot of conversation during the right to the capitol. in many pictures the were taken that day, roosevelt can be seen leading to the crowd or smiling to the crowd or turning toward hoover and trying to have a conversation. every picture you will see hoover is just looking ahead ignoring him. there's been other times also where the president, the newly and the old, didn't get along so well and that mentioned in my book can't we all get along. sometimes the weather is a big issue. here's 1909 that is william howard taft driving together with teddy roosevelt. we can't see them, but they are in the carriage. and here is the route they take. that's pennsylvania avenue heading toward the capitol. now from

everything we had imagined. one of the moments was the time obama had to talk explicitly about race. right here in philadelphia. but as the first black president can talk the least about race. he knows he cannot discuss it but part of what he tried to do was say let me say something to bring people together then i don't have to bring it up again. that was quintessential paranoia that americans are so acute, resistant, to even bring up the idea they will disqualify from the highest lot of the land. to say there are ways to address differences, racial or class but it brings a buddy together. that is a nice model. it doesn't have to be race specific to have racial equality everybody to have a piece of the pie but the irony is a dedicated to invoke race disqualifies because people are so upset and alienated of racial inequality and discrimination. it is an incredible difficult scenario to stand up as a first black president cannot talk about race because that would define the disqualification. their own negotiating same periodic -- variations. >> host: are white americans' overly sensitive wit
